Claiming for a whiplash injury in Prestwick
The first thing to remember is to always get advice. With whiplash there are many people who mistakenly believe that they are not entitled to make a claim because the injury itself is not bad enough. This is a mistake – in truth you should always take time to investigate your rights.
What the law says
The law is pretty simple on this issue. It says that you may be able to claim compensation if you have been injured in an accident within the last three years which was not your fault. The severity of the injury itself is extremely important. You will need to have been hurt in a way which has had a significantly negative impact on your quality of life. That can be something which has either caused you reduced mobility and stopped you from enjoying your life as much as you used to or something purely financial.
Whiplash injuries are among the more common issues that we see. They occur when a sudden jolt does damage to the neck and can be quite severe. Although highly unpleasant, many people see these as being comparatively minor, but it’s not hard to see how these injuries can cause severe problems. If you’re self employed, for example, and you’re unable to work for as little as a week this can leave you with a major hole in your bank balance. In such situations we believe personal injury claims are more than appropriate. Indeed we think they are essential if you’re to get your life back on track.
